Profile

As Joe Denly himself remarked upon winning a recall for England's Test tour of Sri Lanka in 2018, "I went missing for a few years." Beyond his 30th birthday, his county career seemed to be slowly and respectably fading away. But that England call, legitimised by his peers as he won the PCA Players' Player of the Year award as well as topping the Most Valuable Player rankings, marked a wonderful renaissance.
